    Hey all,

    A few years ago I bought a Fender Am Standard Pbass, with the Custom Shop 62 pickup in it.

    I have never really liked the pickup a lot, too much mid-scooped. So a few months ago I installed a Pure Vintage 63.
    I like that way better!

    But when I listen to bass-only tracks of late '60s Pbasses on YouTube, the sound seems more high-mids emphisized.

    What aftermarket pickup comes closest to the late '60s Pbass pickup?

    Thanks for helping!

    Do you have any audio demos of the Pure Vintage 63' and CS 62 pickups?
